Showtime picks up Lisa Kudrow series

'Web Therapy' consists of 45 shorts to be strung together

Showtime has picked up Lisa Kudrow's online series "Web Therapy" for the network.

The network will take the project's 45 short episodes (which run about five to 10 minutes each) and string three together for each half-hour episode. Showtime will also commission additional content as interstitial material to fill each episode.

"I'm a huge Lisa Kudrow fan, and I think it's a clever show she's put together," said Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt. "It's a great little coup for us."

In "Web Therapy," Kudrow plays a therapist who dispenses advice via webcam. The series will debut on Showtime by the end of the year.
